Godzilla: Rage Across Time

The Nebulans make an appearance in the first issue, revealed to be aiding Kublai Khan's invasion of Japan through controlling Gigan and Megalon. An arrow takes out a Nebulan general's monster controlling device and the two monsters bolt, leaving the Mongol fleet to be destroyed by Godzilla.


  • According to Chris Mowry in an interview conducted by Toho Kingdom, the Nebulans appeared in some of the mini-series pitches he used to build the story for Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, but they were replaced by the Cryogs since IDW was unable to use any human or alien characters from the Toho films. Likewise, the Seatopians were replaced with the Devonians.[1]
